the quarterdeck

Anderson Gallery is a lovely contemporary photography gallery in Lunenburg, which Adam read about in the Globe and Mail recently. He was intrigued, so we went for a look-see. Definitely worth the 2 1/2 hour drive! We met Mariette Roodenburg, whose photographs are nothing short of stunning. And she was very nice, too. On the way there, we stopped at the Quarterdeck Grill, an amazing restaurant on Summerville Beach. What a beautiful spot! There are villas (pictured above) which are open year-round, and we ate our lunch more or less in the Atlantic. I had vegetable spring rolls and summer greens with curried dill dressing (yum!) It was a delightful day, despite Phillip's explosive diaper incident when we were only 45 minutes into the trip. Out came the emergency pants, sigh. We did discover, though, that it's much easier to change him in the trunk of the car than on any of the seats. It must have looked strange to passers-by, who were no doubt wondering why we had our baby in the trunk of the car.
